   Description     : Run commands simply, with detailed diagnostics

Calling Perl's in-built system() function is easy, determining if it  
was successful is hard. Let's face it, $? isn't the nicest variable in  
the world to play with, and even if you do check it, producing a well- 
formatted error string takes a lot of work.
